Bhakha Rinpoche has said:
The wrathful practice of Dorje Drolö is critically important in pacifying all the negative circumstances that we face in today's world. Since the whole spectrum of Buddhadharma teachings and its essence is love, compassion, and wisdom, this wrathful practice is not just the expression of some sort of ordinary rage; rather, it is the pinnacle practice of compassion and wisdom underlying the practice of Buddhadharma at its most profound level. Therefore, for the sake of all sentient beings, particularly in this degenerate time, this practice is a very powerful and immediately effective way of bringing peace and harmony to the world. This particular sadhana, called "The Vital Essence Sadhana of Dudjom T'hak-T'hung Pema," was H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche's heart essence; by doing this practice, Dudjom Rinpoche overcame many obstacles and gained long life.

Dorje Drolö is the eighth aspect of Padmasambhava, in his wrathful manifestation. Dorje Drolö embodies the forces of insight and compassion, beyond logic and convention; hesitancy and clinging are transformed into the fearlessness and spontaneity of the awakened state. Dorje Drolö rides a pregnant tigress, which signifies the latent power of our intrinsic Buddha nature.

The retreat land is located twenty miles south of Grants, New Mexico. The nearest airport is Albuquerque, seventy miles east of Grants on I-40. If driving from the west, Grants is seventy miles east of Gallup, NM.

Accommodations:
The retreat land offers camping only, either in a tent or in your vehicle. Plan to bring camping gear and prepare for a range of temperatures and precipitation. There are hot showers, flush toilets, an outdoor sink, and several potable freshwater taps for your drinking water. If you prefer to stay in a motel, there are many choices in the town of Grants, twenty miles away (a forty-minute drive on a gravel road). Or, you may wish to reserve a room at the local bed-and-breakfast, the Cimarron Rose: 505-783-4770, located a short distance from the retreat land.

Yes Dorje Drollo is a very effective and beneficial practice.
I received empowerment for this practice from Younge Khachab Rinpoche, a most excellent teacher!
